Got NBUS? (Never Before Used Stuff)


Of course you have NBUS!   What crafter doesn’t have “Never Been Used Stuff?”   Well now is the perfect time to put some of that stuff to use.   Darnell Knauss of DJKarddreations is hosting her NBUS Challenge today and Serendipity Stamps is sponsoring it!   So just pull out something you’ve never used before, whip up a card, and submit it to the challenge by Sept 18th.     Darnell is offering all sorts of great prizes!

Want to double your chances of winning?   Let me hear what you think of these pretty cards created by SS Design Team members Jeanne Jachna , Julie Warner, and Vickie Zimmer for the NBUS challenge.  Julie used our new Twig Wreath Stamp, Oak Leaf Die Set and Autumn Die.  Vickie used our new Fall Pops Cling Set and Leaf Pop Set.  Jeanne used our new Fall Pops Cling Set and the PPP Stitched Border 1 Die Set to make her card.  I’ll pick one random commenter to win a $20 Gift Card just for taking a minute to leave a comment here by Sept 18th.  I’ll announce the winner on Sept 19th.

    Absolutely gorgeous! Fall is my favourite time of year so I love these! Gorgeous ink blending on the middle card! The autumn die cut on the first card really caught my eye, and I love the sunflowers on the third card. Wonderful cards by your DT! Thanks for sponsoring Darnell – she’s awesome! I definitely have some NBUS in my stash and I’ll be joining the fun!

    Sad to see the end of summer but happy to see the lovely autumn cards. Love the wreaths and curvy lines of Julie’s card; the bright color of happy fall card are smashing with the pumpkins; and I might have to case that sunflower card for a friend that likes that flower best of all.
